Wynter was the best and most clueless yet cunning leading man I have had the pleasure to read about in a LONG time!! This book made me laugh and giggle at the wild antics he and his children displayed the uptight English Society. I found his mother to be refreshingly loving of her son no matter what the outcome. =)~ This definitly one of my newest FAVORITE
RULES OF SURRENDER is the delightful first installment in Christina Dodds trilogy of three ingenious young ladies who set up a school for governesses to seize control of their lives.
Lady Charlotte Dalrumple is hired by Lady Ruskin to make her Eastern-raised grandchildren into perfect English children. But Charlottes challenge is not the children, but their father, Wynter, whose outspoken nature, mocking attitude and unbridled sensuality, make him fascinating and dangerous to prim and proper Charlotte.
The children are lovable and bright and Charlotte can handle them, but their teasing, taunting father is another story, The wonderful cat and mouse battle of wills that ensues between Charlotte and Wynter will warm readers right down to their toes
Excellent book by Christina Dodd. The cold governess is forced to confront her past and manage a barbaric, yet handsome Englishman who has been away from England for too long. While instructing his children, she learns a few instructions herself. Likable characters make this a quick steamy read.
Great story!! I love Wynter and his misguided notions of marriage, love, and courtship.
